Ryan's Birthday Blog Candy


Well here is the blog candy as promised, sorry I didn't get it posted yesterday as promised, but we got back from the hospital later than I thought we would. The consultant thinks that Ryan probably has got IBS, but wants to do another ultrasound scan, and that it can be managed by diet, so he needs to see the dietician like Terry did. I'm going with him, taking my notebook, and I will be asking lots of questions. We eat terribly since Terry was diagnosed as he is on a low fibre diet, little veg, no fruit, he's lactose and wheat intolerant, he can't eat tomatoes, onions, mushrooms etc. So, no pasta sauces, and I just can't be bothered just for myself, and I've lost quite a lot of weight. Maybe a good thing, but I tend to see food as a real headache these days, because I don't know what to feed Terry or Ryan, who is a fussy vegetarian. The poor dietician won't know what's hit her when I go in there!

Anyway, back to the blog candy!!! It has come about for several reasons really, Ryan, my baby, is 18 on 27th October, (OMG). I don't feel old enough, where has the time gone? I also bought some Whiff of Joy Christmas stamps recently, and somehow bought two of one of the stamps, how did I do that? Lastly, I am emptying my craft room so that a window can be moved from one wall and put into another, which is a very messy job. It is a good opportunity to sort out any unwanted craft items which may be added to the blog candy as I go along.

Initially I am giving away the cute little WOJ stamp, and a huge 12 x 12 DCWV Christmas stack. I will be adding lots of other goodies to this as I empty my craft room over the next three to four days and will amend this post as I go along, so please check back and look at the bottom. I do not know how to use Mr. Linky, or anything fancy, so I am going to ask Ryan to pull numbers out of a bag to choose the winner, and because of the weight of this candy, I will only post to UK bloggers I'm afraid. I will close the candy on October 28th, the day after Ryan's birthday. Please mention my candy on your blog if you have one, and leave me a comment, or you won't get put in the draw! There will be lots more items added, as I'm going to be ruthless in my clearing out, I promise, so I think you'll like what you get. Judith x

Hi Judith this is lovely candy so far. What a coincidence about Ryan's birthday - my elder daughter's second baby is due on the 27th and my son's birthday is the 28th. I'm off to link you on my blog.

Thanks for giving us all the chance to win your celebratory candy Judith.

I actually put it in my sidebar with a link as soon as you posted it this morning but I had to concentrate so hard to get it right that I completely forgot to leave a comment here, Doh !!!!

No wonder you find meal times a nightmare. I find it bad enough having to be careful because I have a hiatus hernia so I think I'd give up eating altogether if I had several people in the family with the problems your menfolk have.

Happy birthday to Ryan, and I hope he gets sorted out soon - don't envy you the diet problems though, sounds as if it is going to be very tough for the poor lad as a veggie!
Hopefully will be able to put a link, as failed last time i tried.........

Jane said...

Congratulations to Ryan. It goes so fast, doesn't it? Hope you get their diets sorted, but don't neglect your own in the process! Let's hope the dietician has some bright ideas! My brother is lactose, nut and yeast intolerant, so I can sympathise. I have linked to you blog candy in my side bar.

Hi Judith. What lovely candy and a lovely idea to do it on such a special day. I can't imagine mine getting to be 18, but I'm sure it'll come far too quickly!!!!

Your mealtimes sound a nightmare. No wonder it takes all the fun out of preparing food. I hope the dietician can help.
Take care
